Mysterious Pokemon Bus Spotted in London!

A Pokemon bus has been spotted in London and other parts of England! The bus is themed after a Poke Ball and has a “Galar” placard on the back.

We spoke to Thohack from Reddit, whose mother took the photo. According to her, Pokemon was recording a commercial with different actors in various languages. Two of the actors told a bystander it was a commercial for the Pokemon TCG.

It could be a future commercial for Worlds, Pokemon’s 25th anniversary, or something else. We can’t say for certain since film sets are often secretive and cover stories are common. The actors might not know the full scope of what they’re recording, either.

Pokemon Japan has often used a van to advertise the TCG. Their official TCG host, “Ponyta Ishii,” would drive around Japan to battle and interview people. We’ll eventually find out what’s going on, so stay tuned!

    Those photos were taken last year. OP was just explaining that in Japan, some driver would drive around with those stickers on the van to basically advertise Pokemon. OP was deducing that perhaps in UK, that bus could be advertising for an upcoming event or product.

    No, they were posted like almost 1.5 years ago. They showed these pictures again to show that Pokemon has done something like this before.
